    Not the best at its price point but definitely enjoyable whiskey and worth it for $25 or a tad more. Give it a try!

    Passed on another WhistlePig (though I love the stuff) and grabbed a pair of Rittenhouse BIB's and a WT Rye instead. That should hold me for quite a while in the rye department.

    Passed up a Fall 2006 Eagle Rare 17 for $59.99. I actually have like most of the 17 yr ERs, but with so much good stuff coming out soon, I'll pass today.

    They also had two different FR SB barrel strength options. One for $49 & one for $75. I didn't take down the recipe or barrel info but was hoping someone might be able to help explain why there'd be such a price difference.
    Did the store happen to be in Brooklyn? That's my local spot if it was.
    i don't quite understand the difference between the $49 and $75 bottles, but I picked up one of the $49 bottles a while ago, I reached out to Four Roses about it. If they still have the bottles from Warehouse TS Barrel 8-2E, it's a pretty good pour. It's an OBSK recipe aged 10 years, 11 months.
    I thought it was a great deal for $49.

    Yes, the shop was in Brooklyn and am jealous that you have such a great shop close to you. I went out there during lunch yesterday and will definitely making additional trips when the budget allows. What brought me out there was Weller 12 since I haven't been able find any in manhattan, let alone in NJ but all of the other stuff they had was great and the prices can't be beat.

    Glad to hear that I wasn't the only one confused by the 25 dollar price difference on at least very similar bottles. Thanks for the info and opinion on the $49 version. Yet another bottle to add to my list of ones I want to try.

    Re: What did you pass up today? Summer 2012

    I had to pass up a lot of great stuff today...

    Lot B - $55
    PVW 15 - $75
    PVW 20 - $130
    PHC 1st ed. (but 3rd release) - $100
    PHC Golden Anniversary - $160
    ER 10/101 - $80
    A bunch of overpriced BTAC

    ...the list goes on an on...but before I get a bunch of PMs, all of these bottles were in Japan (I'm in the US) and the reason I had to pass so many is because my buddy who agreed to bring some back for me can only bring a couple bottles with him and I decided to get some Japan-only labels.

    Re: What did you pass up today? Summer 2012

    At the Heaven Hill Distillery, had to pass on some great stuff (as I've hit my limit). They had some EC 20, EC 21, EC 23, some EC 12 barrel proof. KBD also had some great stuff (some Vintage bourbon/rye, and various different ages of Willett Estates stuff).

    How much was the EC12 BP going for at the heritage center?
